VINTON, LA (KPLC) - Vinton Police have arrested a Starks woman after she allegedly committed three recent home robberies in the Vinton area.

Chrystal Gore of Starks was arrested Tuesday for forgery, theft, unauthorized use of an access credit card, and possession of cocaine.

According to police, Gore's most recent home robbery happened Tuesday morning at Barbara Courville's home on West Street in Vinton.

Gore allegedly approached Courville and asked if she could come in to use the bathroom.

"I had seen her around the neighborhood and I thought she was a nice lady," said Courville.

But within that time, the police said Gore got away with Courville's wallet and checkbook, then made her way to the Dollar General Store just down the street where she would spend almost 100 dollars.

"The cashier she noticed the picture ID in my wallet did not look like the girl purchasing the items," said Courville.

Police shortly arrived and then took her into custody.

According to police, Gore's criminal history with the Vinton Police Department started back in 2005 and since then she has been arrested 34 times by the police in Vinton.

"She's an individual that will take advantage of anything she can of yours," said Chief Ricky Fox of the Vinton Police Department.

Vinton Police urge everyone to stay on guard even though the latest culprit has been caught.

"If she bonds out she may very well come and knock on your door," said Fox. "Don't let her anywhere near your property because when she leaves some of your property is going to leave."

Chrystal Gore remains in the Calcasieu Correctional Center where her bond is set at $115,000.

    Dry weather expected for SundayDry weather expected for Sunday

    Tonight, the showers will start to wind down. There should not be much rain left after midnight. Clouds will linger overnight. It will still be a muggy night, with temperatures not cooling down very much. I’m forecasting a low of 59 degrees, but it may not cool down that far overnight. By Sunday, the same front that stalled over us, will begin to weaken. Therefore, I do not think there will be many showers around. I’m keeping a 20% for a little bit of drizzle overnight.
